MEK Iran: What Does Nuclear Program Mean to Mullahs Regime?
The Iranian regime has pursued nuclear weapons since its very early days. It would be fair to argue that the Iranian regime has, and maybe – or probably – still does, consider its nuclear program as a means of survival.
Just after the Islamic Revolution in 1979, the regime came up against a lot of resistance, particularly from the young people in the country, so it took the nuclear threat as a backup, or insurance policy, just in case dissent became a very real threat to its existence.
After2003(revelation of Iran’s nuclear prgm by @NCRIUS)the Shock Generator Project&Sanjarian facility were provided with a cover purpose of performing non-nuclear military+non-military explosive tests,some activities were shifted to universities,ie Malek Ashtar University(MUT)

The Iranian regime is one of the most dangerous impediments to peace and stability in the Middle East, in the region, and even further beyond. The Iranian regime is the number one state sponsor of terrorism and it is the number one executioner per capita in the world. It is also the leading state executioner of minors.
So even without nuclear power, the Iranian regime is a very serious threat. Obviously, this threat would increase should Iran be nuclear-armed.
The main opposition to the Iranian regime, the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), and The People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI / MEK Iran), has been instrumental in revealing details about Iran’s nuclear program. It has uncovered secret locations and has informed foreign intelligence agencies about details that intelligence experts were not even aware of.

Alireza Jafarzadeh, the Deputy Director of the NCRI’s Washington office, has spoken about the nuclear threat on numerous occasions. He has spoken extensively about Iran’s plans, activities, developments, and also the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) and the regime’s failure to comply with it.
Thankfully, the NCRI and the internal network of the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI / MEK Iran) have drawn the world’s attention to the matter otherwise unspeakable damage could already have been done.
The regime has recently agreed for the IAEA (nuclear watchdog) to visit Iran following huge international pressure. The IAEA director, Rafael Grossi, went to Iran at the end of August and when he came back he reported that Iran is clearly violating the terms of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), or the 2015 Iran nuclear deal as it is more formally known.

He said that Iran has unauthorized levels of enriched uranium and that its enrichment percentage is higher than it should be.
State media in Iran has responded by saying that the IAEA and the United States are conspiring together “based on the reports of the most hostile enemies of the system, the MEK”. It is incredible that Iran would report that an independent nuclear watchdog and a major world power are “conspiring” against another state.
The facts speak for themselves and Iran has proven time and time again that it cannot be trusted. Its nuclear intentions are malign and the international community has a responsibility to face up to this threat and take action before it is too late.
The people of Iran are worried about their international standing too and they deserve to be heard by the international community too.
Zarif's questioning before the mullahs’ new parliament for the first time became a scene of disputes that shed new light & provided an intriguing window into the internal disputes & crises riddling the entire regime.#Iranhttps://t.co/gUcnFOWYWz
